This school is not what it used to be nor are the teachers. The principle needs to put her self in the parents place and listen instead of trying to convince that she is right and that it is either her way or no way. I wont even give her 1 star. Chesterfield schools are not at the top anymore. At least not this school. Many teachers lack communication and wait until the final moment to inform you of any problems. Mother of two which attend this school.

The teachers and staff go far beyond what needs to be done. They have many activities for the children to participate in and great involvement in the PTA. I would like to see more parent involvement in the classrooms as a room parent. Don't just let the room parent do everything. Thanks

I'm going to 10th grade this Year. I LOVED this school from k-4 this is the best school! The teacher help you as much as you can especially making sure you know how to read and add and subtract at a steady pace. When I was in 3rd Grade my Teacher taught us 5th grade work. It was really helpful. They make sure you have fun and learn at the same time.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
